How to Get a Perfect Set of Eyelash Extensions?

There is no discomfort or pain involved in the procedure. In fact, most clients find it is so relaxing and comfortable that they fall asleep. You will be comfortably reclined with your eyes closed while Eyelash Extensions are applied one at a time to your own natural eyelashes.

These products have such a dramatic impact on a person’s eyes and face—the eyes are the most prominent feature on any person. Applying a full set of lashes, which refurbishes the “windows of your soul”, takes about two hours, and can be maintained year-round with touch-ups recommended every three to four weeks. A half set of lashes is an economical alternative to achieve a similarly dramatic effect, applied as filler to thicken natural lashes, or applied outward from the eye for a specialized look. Everyone has different lashes, and depending on the condition of your own natural lashes, lash experts can only go a certain length or thickness.

Step 1. Apply under-eye stickers

When applying under eye stickers/gel patches, you should avoid placing the sticker too close to the eye, else it will cause your eye to water. The sticker should be placed over the lower lashes, about 3-4 millimeters from the lower lash line.

Step 2. Choose extensions

Always use at least three different lengths of extensions that range from 6 mm to 14 mm in length. It is best to use 8 mm lash extensions in the inner corners of the eye to avoid an artificial clownlike look. It is also important to use 8 mm extensions all across the eye, between the longer extensions to create a thick lash line. Failure to mix in short extensions results in empty gaps that make the long extensions look similar to spider legs. For a striking look, opt for the thickest (0.25mm) curly extensions. Finer extensions create a more natural look.

Step 3. Pick-up

Spread lashes out on your vinyl pad designed for quick pick up of the extensions. Orient extension properly in the tweezers.The extension should be oriented at a 90° angle to the straight tweezer for quick, accurate application.

Step 4. Dip

While holding the extension from its tapered end, dip the extension into the adhesive; make sure there is ample adhesive at the base of the extension. Wipe off any excess prior to applying.

Step 5. Isolate and Swipe

Isolate the natural lash with the curved tweezers. While holding the extension from its tapered end, swipe the extension along the natural lash. Coat the natural lash with adhesive from base to tip with no gaps in the glue. Spread the adhesive until smooth.

Step 6. Set

After swiping the natural lash with enough adhesive to coat it, set the extension on the lash about 1/2–1 mm away from the eyelid. Release the extension onto the natural lash. The lash should be facing upwards and parallel to the other lashes without any beads of glue. Do not touch the extension after setting. Move on to another area or the opposite eye and repeatedly apply extensions until It becomes difficult to isolate more natural lashes.

Step 7. Separate

No two extensions or natural lashes should be stuck together. Use both sets of tweezers to separate any extensions from neighboring lashes and/or extensions. Grasp and separate in a horizontal manner; best done while the adhesive is dry, but not fully cured. Never pull in a vertical direction or place any tension on natural lashes. Repeat the application and separation steps until every natural lash is bonded.

Step 8. Dry

When all natural lashes have an extension securely bonded, it is time to dry the newly adorned lashes for three minutes. Mist with distilled water, dry again for three minutes and perform one final round of separation.

Finally, you have a perfect set of eyelash extensions! No additional eye makeup is needed and there is no need for removal of the extensions at the end of the day. Say goodbye to the application of mascara, tear stains and mascara raccoon masks around the eyes. With Eyelash Extensions you can look and feel gorgeous from the moment you wake up until the moment you fall asleep with little to no effort.
